Your road map to this week's entertainment-themed podcast:
00:36 So You Think You Can Dance: After giving up on this show two years ago (during an ill-fated "next generation" season featuring tweens), we are trying again. So far, so good!
11:17 The West Wing: On "Constituency of One," everyone in the West Wing is having a terrible, horrible, no-good, very bad day.
21:03 Challenge Round: The Martian: Meanwhile, on Mars, astronaut Mark Watney is having a much worse series of days, but he has a better attitude about it. Mentioned: Articles about the movie's use of the F-word, and the school-friendly version of the book from which the film was adapted.
For next week, Terri challenged Catherine to watch the pilot of Royal Pains (thus completing her USA Network bingo card). We'll also watch West Wing's "Disaster Relief" and the next episode of So You Think You Can Dance.
Join parenting and education writers Terri Mauro, Catherine Holecko, and Nicole Eredics for daily chats on parenting teens and young adults (and a little TV-watching too).
